2009 Mazda 6: I was hit by an AUX

May 14, 2009


I consider the Mazda 6's lack of an iPod specific connection to be a huge mistake. It's just the kind of thing a typical Mazda customer would want in a big way. An aux in jack is not the same - it won't charge and you can't navigate your device without looking down. That being said, it does work in the most basic sense. However, the one thing I just can't take is the fact that whenever I turn the car off then on again, the stereo never stays on the AUX setting. Almost every time I fire the car up, the radio is on some other setting usually CD. I leave my iPod hooked up and it remains running on shuffle. If I can't have total control then at least give me the ability to jump right back into 16 gigs of randomness. Truly maddening!
